Long ago, the people who bowed before the ancient gods became careless and they forgot about them. They stopped visiting the temples and saying their prayers.

The ancient gods flew into a fury and decided to punish them. However one of the gods felt sorry for the people and wanted to help them avoid their punishment. He can't involve himself personally in mortal affairs, so it's up to you to support him and restore the dilapidated temples.

The Game:
Review 1:
Do you like mahjong? Like... a lot? Then with nearly a thousand levels, Legendary Mahjong is fluttering its handkerchief coyly your way. Angry about being forgotten, the gods have set out to punish humankind, but luckily the "God of Unbridled Happiness" is going to help you restore their temples and avoid their sullen wrath. Legendary Mahjong is low on bells and whistles, but full to bursting with simply satisfying levels, different game modes, special tiles and more that will keep you busy for a long time.
The basics of mahjong are very, well, basic. The goal is to remove all the tiles from the playing field by clicking two identical tiles, though some tiles, like flowers, can be matched even if they aren't identical as long as they come from the same "family". Because mahjong tiles are stacked, you can only remove a tile as long as it isn't obstructed... if there's something blocking it from sliding out to the left or right, or something stacked on top, you can't use it. Legendary Mahjong keeps this same formula, with a few user-friendly mechanics to make it a little more forgiving. You can click the last set you matched at the bottom of the screen to undo moves, or use the shuffle button to swap all the pieces around randomly, though these aren't available on all levels, and others have special requirements.
The level is won when you match the two glowing green orb tiles, but to get a perfect three-star rating, you'll need to clear the board. The counter to the left shows you how many available matches you have, and if you don't want to resort to shuffling, you'll plan your moves to clear space in the most efficient way possible, because there are often multiple matches of the same sets of tiles. Things get trickier when specific tiles are tossed into the mix, like Lock Tiles, whose key you need to find to remove, and each temple you visit has its own set of rules. The Fire Temple is traditional, for example, though the Earth Temple will have you matching tiles in a specific order.

While Legendary Mahjong doesn't really offer a lot of frills, there's a lot to be said for a game that knows exactly how to do its core concept, and then tips a massive bowl of it onto your plate, saying, "Eat and be sated". Die-hard traditionalists may find the extra elements more gimmicky if all they want is ye olde school-e mahjong, but there's so much of it that you'll still find a lot to enjoy, and the game doesn't require you to finish all of a temple before unlocking the next one. Truth be told, most of the special tiles and modes do feel sort of tacked on, but it's not as if we aren't spoiled for choice. The presentation is simple, but polished, though the in-level soundtrack tends to vanish from time to time. If you're looking for a puzzle game with a lot of twists around one core formula and enough levels to glut yourself on for days, Legendary Mahjong is an easy recommendation. It's guaranteed to keep casual mahjong fans happy if not slightly unnerved by the dead-eyed, glittering stare of "the God of Unbridled Happiness". Isn't that something Trilby should be handling?

Review 2:
With Legendary Mahjong you get exactly what its title tells you, a legendary game that has so much to offer, starting with the different types of game for you to enjoy, each with its own rules and fun strategies. Not limited to this, you may also play over 300 plus levels in its classic mode, from where you get to customize your layout and tiles of choice -- to suit what you want to do whenever you want and there is a lot to keep you entertained in this brilliant game.
At the onset, you get to start with a host of choices as to what style of game you can try. Mainly though, it showcases its Adventure mode predominantly, bragging 500 levels to scour through the entire game. Ultimately, the goal is to restore 6 ancient temples to appease the Gods – from where you get the sections of a challenge from each temple there are in the game. After 4 levels are played, another temple is unlocked, so you can unlock all the temples and play whatever mode you want, without having to finish all the boards in each temple. With 6 different game modes to play through, everything adds up to the huge amount of variety and fun to whole game.
Varieties of play include the Classic mode where you get the usual pairing challenge from the typical mahjong game, the Match mode where tiles are shown at the bottom of the screen and tasks you to make matches with them (over the cluster on deck), the Slide mode, where you slide the tiles to reach to their conclusive pairs, the Numbers mode where you get to match numbered tiles to the sum given, the Triple mode where you get to match tiles that are three of a kind, and the Rivers mode where you make matches by line linking. Each of which gives off a short sequenced tutorials to get you properly backed up with each of the new variation’s unique mechanics.

There is a really nice feel to Legendary Mahjong when you play it. Presentation wise, the game comes with 14 varieties of tiles which themselves gets a unique detail on their own. There is simplicity to the way you play which is refreshing and it keeps you going, especially that it enlists varied mechanics to get you the many ways you can randomize the challenge. The overall look is good, with its simple styling and easy to understand navigation. The games themselves are a lot of fun to play and you can try them all for a free hour of trial, prior to actual purchase.
Overall there is a lot of variety to the game, and these different styles can be both really challenging and a lot of fun at the same time. All in all, the game sees to it that it will keep you entertained for a long time, especially with the varied types of play, and massive number of levels it has to offer.

Conclusion:
If you like solitaire versions of Mahjong, you'll almost certainly like this one. With a thousand boards, Legendary Mahjong should keep you going for several weeks or more. The boards are varied with both Mahjong styled tiles and other tile patterns including numbers. It's an excellent family oriented board game though not true Mahjong which is usually played in a group of four players. (I love the four player game much preferring it to chess. I bought my first Mahjong set with money I'd earned from my paper round when i was 13 years old. Still got the set in the attic). That said, this solitaire game using Mahjong tiles (and others) and a pleasant graphic style is still a very enjoyable game and well worth an 8 out of 10 for game play from me. :)

Installed fine, but when the icon is pressed, it starts to open the MyPlayCity "preview" box and then everything disappears back to desktop. Game won't open!

I've played this game as a break from HOGs but if you're looking for a story, you'll be disappointed. It's great for a lazy hot day or rainy day game play, not much thought processes going on, the graphics are pretty, a child could easily catch on and play it since there is a simple tile set. It's okay, not for me though but for others who are either new to the game or do not want any fluff with their game, this is worth a try.

The game will not download. It says "zip can't be downloaded securely". This is the first time this has happened on this site.

This is the single most incredible Mahjong I've ever played. There's no going back to the usual boring mahjongs after this one. There are different styles of the game I never imagined they could conjure up until this beauty. Each level increasing in difficulty, each challenge becoming a personal quest to beat the game. Once I reached the end--which took QUITE a while--I still play the various levels and sublevels over and over. It's my go-to for escape AND relaxation. Once you figure out a few tricks, the game takes on a whole new enjoyment. This one is "Keeper of the Year."

Very fun and addictive game, you really need to think on some levels to be able to clear them. I managed to play the game to the bitter end and it took me a while to do that.

One trick is thaht you can bump a tile but you really need to time it right to get it to work.
